I stayed here with three of my children for 2 nights. It is cosy and quirky, great breakfast, beautiful surroundings, very comfortable room. But the best bit was Renee and Marije. They were laid back, helpful, friendly and fun; Renee took us out to look for bushbabies.

We arrived after a 7 hour drive from Namibia. We were very happy with the location, outside of the city centre of Maun. Discovery is a very peaceful place and Rene and Marije are friendly and helpful. There are chickens roaming around as well as three cats, one of whom is very friendly. Breakfast was ample. The rooms are comfortable... More

At the end of a long and weary drive, we chanced upon Discovery B&B - a true jewel on the enge of Maun and the Okavango Delta. Comfy, really well maintained and extraordinarily hospitable and helpful. Thank You

A great place to stay in Maun, we stayed in many places in Maun and Discovery B&B is by far our favorite spot! The rooms are very clean and comfortable, the outdoor shower is great and always with hot water. The breakfast is very nice, especially the muffins! The owners, René and Marije, are lovely people.

We spent three nights at Discovery B&B, which is ideally located to visit Moremi Game Reserve & the Okavango Delta. The atmosphere is very relaxed and pleasant. René & Marije are very very kind and helpful. They know a lot about visiting Okavango & Moremi, and they give very good tips about dining in nearby lodges. We also had the... More

We (senior couple from Norway) had Discovery as our base camp for 3 weeks in April, while making shorter trips to other destinations and lodges in the Territory. Excellent solution, having our own safe and guarded rondavel while travelling around with light luggage only. Simple, but very sufficient facilities, including outside shower and washing, and charming chairs around the fireplace... More

Discovery is a lovely stop-over just outside of Maun - clean,wonderful atmosphere,extremely helpful owners and really a beautiful setting. The rooms are well set out and clean with REALLY hot water...we stayed in the family unit that was a bit small but sufficient with a bunk bed for the kids. The B&B has a fire pit where one can relax... More

We had to find accomodation in Maun after our tent needed some welding reparation works and we couldn't make it back to Savuti the same day to continue our itinerary. The owner welcomed us warmly and showed us around. The breakfast is nice and if you want a drink, just take it from the fridge and note it down. The... More
